Every spring, I make a music playlist with songs that help focus my heart and attention on the Easter season. This year, I’m sharing my playlist. As you listen over the next few days, I hope you focus your eyes on the cross and the sacrifice Jesus made.
He was despised and rejected by mankind, a man of suffering, and familiar with pain. Like one from whom people hide their faces he was despised, and we held him in low esteem. Surely he took up our pain and bore our suffering, yet we considered him punished by God, stricken by him, and afflicted. But he was pierced for our transgressions, he was crushed for our iniquities; the punishment that brought us peace was on him, and by his wounds we are healed.
-Isaiah 53:3-5 (NIV)
